    • Discord at Brooklyn Museum Over Curatorial ChangesOctober 5, 2006 By RANDY KENNEDYCuratorial staff at Brooklyn Museum is causing deep dissension within institution's ranks, playing part in resignation of three veteran curators and two board members; actions are in response to museum doing away with traditional departments and replacing them with two 'teams,'one for collections and one for exhibitions; museum director Arnold L Lehman describes changes, which were adopted without seeking approval of museum board, as badly needed step to make Brooklyn's relatively small curatorial staff more efficient and to encourage curators to exchange ideas more freely; some curators see changes as way to diminish traditional power to conceive, propose and organize exhibitions; photo (M)

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"
